BOOTHBAY RAILWAY VILLAGE

MODEL RAILROADERS

Freight Station Front Door

The model railroad exhibit is being constructed for the Boothbay Railway Village to portray railroading in Maine during the 1950s—1960s timeframe which will allow both steam and diesel locomotives.  The current HO scale layout has been under construction since the fall of 2006 and will take several years to complete.  The exhibit is housed in a replica of the Maine Central freight station in Bowdoin, ME located at the top of the hill near the Antique Auto Exhibit.

 

All of the work on the layout is done by volunteers, and it is funded by annual dues, donations, sales of donated model railroad equipment, and an annual raffle. The group is always interested in donations of model railroad layouts, locomotives, rolling stock,  buildings, scenery materials, tools or reference materials. These items will be used on our current layout or sold at model train shows.  For more information see our Raffle Page.

 

Since 2005 the Model Railroad Group has been teaching summer model railroading classes through the Great Explorations program that is run by the Boothbay Elementary School. Students between 8 and 12 years old build their own small diorama including track, a road, scenery, a building and a freight car.

The Model Railroad Group meets Thursday afternoons and evenings year round.  Please come and feel welcome. Contact the museum for more information
